*Free flight Sim with Microsoft Excel 97*
*****************************************


Proof that microsoft programmers have too much time on their hands

This works on any Win95/NT PC with Microsoft Excel 97 installed

Instructions:

1 In Excel 97, open a new blank worksheet.
2 Press F5 (go to) and type in the range X97:L97
3 Click OK.
4 Now press Tab once (this should put you in cell M97)
5 Press Ctrl+Shift while clicking once on the chart wizard button
(the blue-yellow-red barchart icon).

After a few moments, you will be flying over an eerie fractal landscape.

Fly around awhile and soon you'll notice a mesa with a shallow
depression
and a small scrolling shrine to Excel 97 and those who made it happen.
Careful, the controls are very sensitive.
You can exit the screen by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc
